JW Marriott to be part of concrete monstrosity

Marriott is to operate a new JW Marriott in Bangalore, the Garden City, India, under a management agreement with Gstaad Hotels. The 250-room property is scheduled to open in early 2007. The property will be the second JW Marriott in India.

The JW Marriott Hotel Bangalore will be part of a 14-acre development that will also include the new headquarters for United Breweries (UB) Group and UB City, a one million-square-foot mixed-use development offering prime office and retail space. The hotel will be situated on a three-acre site at the corner of Kasturba Road and Vittal Mallya Road, boasting sweeping views of UB City and overlooking the 350-acre Cubbon Park in the center of Bangalore.

The JW Marriott Hotel Bangalore will be located in close proximity to the heart of the city’s commercial center and high-end residential neighborhoods, Bangalore’s race course and golf course, and the Palace Gardens, in addition to the primary retail and entertainment areas of the city center. The airport is approximately a 25-minute drive away.

“We are thrilled by the continued growth of our portfolio in India and the addition of this second JW Marriott hotel,” said Ed Fuller, president and managing director of international lodging for Marriott International. “Bangalore is one of India’s most important commercial centers, and we are confident that this stunning hotel in an excellent location in the heart of the city will be a welcomed addition to the city’s business and tourism infrastructure.”

For dining and entertainment, the JW Marriott Hotel Bangalore will have a 24-hour multi-cuisine brasserie; three specialty restaurants, one of which will offer al fresco poolside dining; and the Bangalore Baking Company, a 24-hour coffee shop. It will also feature a lobby lounge and bar, a pool bar and a night club. Recreational amenities will include a spa featuring five treatment rooms, a swimming pool, and a health and fitness center. Additionally, the hotel will have a 24-hour multi-purpose business center, an extensive executive level and retail shops.

For conferences and social events, the JW Marriott Hotel Bangalore will offer 1,140 square meters of space, including a 600-square-meter ballroom that will be divisible into three sections; three additional meeting rooms in varying configurations, one of which will be divisible into two sections, and one boardroom.

Do you happen to have a picture of this concrete monstrosity? I believe their original plans(as available on the various websites) of a newyork like skyline has been scaled down. I also believe they have a scale model at their UB city office. Hard to find out, from the very limited info on the internet, how much damage they are actually doing.

No, I don't have a picture beyond what is featured on ubindia.com or prestigeconstructions.com However, even from a distance of 2-3 kms from the place one can see two tall (>150ft) towers under construction.

I would like to know whether the JW Marriott Hotel in Bangalore is operational. If no I would like to have an understanding as to when the hotel would be ready
